Caption: Gagarin with his wife and daughters. Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin (left, 1934-1968) with his wife Valentina (right) and daughters Galina (born 1910) and Elena (born 1959) on holiday in August 1965. Gagarin had married Valentina Goryacheva eight years earlier in 1957. Four years before this photograph was taken, Gagarin had become the first human in space, orbiting the Earth in the Vostok 1 spacecraft on 12 April 1961. Following this historic spaceflight, Gagarin became a hero in the Soviet Union and famous worldwide. Photographed on the Black Sea coast, in the Crimea region of the Ukraine.
